153. #HousingShock: Borrow to Build with Prof Kieran McQuinn, ESRI

This Reboot Republic #HousingShock podcast talks to Professor Kieran McQuinn, of the ESRI, the Economic and Social Research Institute, about understanding why we are in the housing crisis, the scale of the housing affordability problem, and the economics behind why the state can and should borrow to build social and affordable housing on a major scale.

Professor McQuinn worked in the Irish Central Bank and is an adjunct professor of economics at University College Cork and Trinity College Dublin. He explains the economics behind his recent paper which recommended a doubling of the state’s Budgetary capital spend on social and affordable housing building.
